Waiver Frustration

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, my Mex husband had his waiver approved officially on 12/28/11. We rec'vd the approval letter early in Jan. I have called the 703# almost every week since 1 month after the waiver interview and they still show our application as pending. Today was the 6mos expiration of his Medical eval. and still when I called today there was nothing new. At this point I don't even know what to think, the ppl at the 703# say if nothing is rec'vd by 3/16 then they will take action (don't know what) I am so frustrated because now not only do we continue to be separated and have to wait but now we need to spend more money sending him back to CDJ for another eval and then to wait for an unspecified amt of time to get the visa. This is so overwhelmingly stressful. Is there anyone that has recently been in this situation or are currently in it that have had better luck?

I'm no expert on CDJ, but I thought your medical was good for 1 year from taking it. In the Philippines it's only good for 6 months for sure. Hope I'm right, might save you some headache and money. Best of luck!!

Wait a minute they didn't give it to him right there and then? Did they specify y?

Sorry one more ? Did he get the same officer as when he went to the first interview?

He had a waiver so the medical eval was performed during his initial visa interview. The waiver interview was 2mos later. They didn't give him his visa then because of the waiver that needed approval. You are not guaranteed the same IO at the interviews from what I understand its like going to the DMV and getting a number, whichever IO is available is the one you report to.

It's so frustrating but you have to hang in there...I'm sure you will get some great news soon.

Thank you for your kind words, I really hope we do hear something soon.

Unfortunately, the medical is not good for more than 6mos. I verified this with the info line and our atty office. It looks like we'll be spending some money after all. Thanks for your kind words.
